I have to say that one of my favorite food is Chinese, and I have learned through out the years to cook some of my favorite dishes. Fried wontons are one of my favorite dishes, they are just so addicting, once you have one you keep on eating more and more, and before you know it you have eaten about 15 of them, yup that happens to me all the time. The best part is that you can fill them with chicken, shrimp, vegetables and my favorite, pork. My recipe is very simple, and the only thing that is time consuming is folding the wonton wraps, making the filling and frying them is fast and easy. I hope you guys enjoy them as much as my family does.
Fried Pork Wonton
40-50 wonton wrappers
1 lb minced pork
3 Tbsp light soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup green scallions (chopped, small)
1 tsp fresh ginger (minced)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp white pepper
* you can add also to the recipe vegetables of your choice (carrots, mushroom, etc..)
1. In a small bowl combine all ingredients.
2. Place a teaspoon of filling in the center of the wrapper.
3. Grab a small bowl with water and dip your finger into the bowl of water and run your finger along the edges of the wrapper. Fold bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling and press all edges to close the wrapper, you’ll have a triangle.
Note:When making these use a damp paper towel to cover the wonton wrappers, otherwise they may dry out before you have a chance to fill them.
4. In a large pot, preheat the canola oil over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, fry until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes on each side.
